LAS VEGAS – April 11, 2011: At the NAB Show in Las Vegas, audio specialist Sennheiser (booth C 0255) sets a new professional standard for film, television and broadcast applications with the introduction of two new shotgun models.

The MKH 8060 is a versatile short shotgun, which features a compact size and light weight for camera mounting and boom pole applications. The MKH 8070 is a long shotgun, which is ideal for sports broadcast and nature recording applications that require high directivity. Sennheiser’s new shotguns are members of the renowned MKH series, which uses the radio-frequency principle to resist the effects of cold and moisture. Both models suppress off-axis sound without coloration, resulting in an extremely pleasing, natural sound.

New York–April 11, 2011: FOX Sports’ broadcast of Super Bowl XLV on January 28, 2011 was the most watched television program in American history. The championship game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers drew approximately 163 million viewers around the world, and also marked the official debut of the new Sennheiser MKH 8070 broadcast microphone, which was deployed on eight handheld cameras on the field for the duration of the game.

Fred Aldous, FOX Sports audio consultant and senior mixer, is a veteran broadcast engineer who has supervised audio for the last five Super Bowl broadcasts for FOX Sports, including Super Bowl XLV. He relies on shotgun microphones to pick up every detail of what is happening both on the sidelines and on the field — from the pre-game festivities, to voices in the huddle to hard-hitting, physical impact. For many years, he has relied on the classic Sennheiser MKH 816, which he considers “one of the best microphones ever built for the application.” This year, at Super Bowl XLV, Aldous and his crew got an exclusive chance to preview the new Sennheiser MKH 8070.
